Hi,

Please comment my decisions/design

I have the URLy application and as like the others the URLy musts run in three modes server, client and alone. So far so good.

When the user starts the server he gets the server frame. Here he can (only) see the actual server configuration and he can start/stop the server. It also possible to alter the actual configuration by using the server configuration dialog.
With other words I have a frame for server actions(start/stop/configurate) and a dialog for configuration it self.

I do this because most of the time the server use only start/stop, the configuration is something that is not so offend used - I don't need to show it by default.

I have the same logic for the others two modes(client and alone).

I am right ?

In its book Andrew uses the same frame for both (start/stop/configurate) the same frame - the solution is simple and reliable, is this a better solution ?

Regards,
Mihai

P.S. Andrew, nice book !!!
